Sustained Saturday – Gourds and Pumpkins!

Still LIfe - FallSustSat1

I couldn’t deny the Saturday students the pleasure of painting a traditional autumn subject so I reorganized the still life from last Tuesday’s classes.

My demonstration was similar to those from Tuesday, as well. The core and cast shadows of the gourds were painted with grey. Paper white was left untouched for the lightest areas. Once dry, I added local colour. First, the lightest colour and then the darker stripes.

This was the first Sustained Saturday class of the Fall term. Many of the regulars were back. Everyone was happy to see their painting pals and, as always, were very welcoming to the new folks. A nice culture has evolved at the studio over the years. We work hard, support each other and have a lot of fun. The work was terrific. Here it is!
